Please pray for baby Abel

Everyone who prays, please add little Abel Tyson, and his parents Adam and Rachel, to your prayer list. He is now 21 months old and is battling an aggressive form of cancer. He is also severly brain damaged as a result of being oxygen-deprived when he crashed during surgery in January.

Adam is a second year medical student and good friend of my oldest son and his wife. He and Rachel are expecting their second son in a few months, and have been in Memphis at St. Jude's since January.

Here is a link for those who are interested:

The above is a link to Adam and Rachel Tyson's CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated on Abel's fight against stage 3, high-risk neuroblastoma and brain damage. Abel is the joy of their life and is 21 months old. (Please click on "Read Story" on the home page for a brief summary of the events that have brought us to today.)

When I think of baby Abel and the pain that he is in and the agony of his parents, my struggles seem very insignificant indeed.

Thanks for praying!

My thoughts and prayers go out to that beautiful child of G*D,
and his parents...
That they all may experience a complete refuah shleyma -- the renewal of body and spirit.
And that G*D's love will guide them all through this most difficult time.

Heavenly Father,
watch with us over your child, Abel,
and grant that he may be restored
to that perfect health which it is yours alone to give;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thanks everyone! If you have the time, and you haven't already, check out Abel's website that I put a link to. You will be amazed at the faith and courage that his mama and daddy have. They are an inspiration!
